Sweden experiments with solar heating

Sweden experiments with solar heatingSweden has been working on a pilot program to use solar power to heat water in the municipality of Anneborg, and hopes to translate their success into wider use for both heating and cooling.  Solar panels on the roofs of residents heats water, which is then pumped to and stored in the area’s underground bedrock, a pink granite.  This insulates the water, and only on the coldest days of the year is additional power needed from the Swedish electric grid.

Sweden has long since been at the forefront of environmentally friendly technology, and this project is expected to boost their viability.  The ability to store solar generated power could bring huge changes in the industry, both for heating and cooling purposes.  Soon, areas of the Gulf Coast could be benefitting from cheaper cooling costs thanks to Sweden’s heating experiment!
